The concept of ecommerce has been around for 20 years in South Africa and it accounts to only 1% of the total retail sector. However, since 2012, the ecommerce industry has shown upward trends, growing by more 30% p.a. As a result, today’s business models in South Africa evolve and adopt the use of B2B, B2C and Ecommerce platforms, especially the automated payment systems & the courier industry.
These commercial services have had to develop rapidly since the end users in South Africa have high expectations about delivery of service and product quality, particularly the ones imported from foreign nations, such as China.
Mr Lin Yangyang, the founder of Happydeal.co.za has a momentous vision about the cross-border ecommerce industry development. He has gathered leading businesses such as BidorBuy, Fastway Couriers, JCL cargo international, Happydeals.co.za, Beijing Yunzujia Science & Technology Co.,Ltd , SHANGHAI LUCKY SAIL INTERNATIONAL LOGISTICS CO.,LTD and other online companies to establish SA-China Cross-Border Ecommerce Association.
The essence of this association is to liaise and exchange information regarding business and policy developments in respective countries. The association will also focus on SA China cross-border ecommerce, service trends, mobile payment systems developments, couriers, logistics, automation and many more.
We would be honoured to welcome as many companies and entrepreneurs who share our vision to join us. Let us work and develop the African ecommerce future together!
